Great Britain gives £ 2 mln to Albania to combat human traffic

 So much disturbing is the trafficking of modern-day slaves from Albania to Britain that the British authorities are already seeking to fight this phenomenon in the country of origin.

A 2 million pound program was awarded by London to Albania during the meeting of top ranking officials of both countries, the funds will be used to curb the trafficking of modern slavery victims by supporting the victims to rebuild their lives in the country they come from, as well as to prevent people at risk of falling into the hands of traffickers in Albania enabling their delivery to Britain.

About 800 was the number of these victims in the past year before appearing before British authorities seeking asylum from Albania, which is the largest number of foreign nationals.

Tirana, and the districts of Debar, Shkodra and Kukës have been identified by the British government as areas from which come the majority of victims seeking asylum because of trafficking.

British Deputy Prime Minister for Crime and the Protection of Endangered Persons, Victoria Atkin says that "working with our Albanian partners can greatly change the lives of those who have been stolen basic human rights." "Hope Program", the most active association of the Albanian community in Britain dealing with the integration of these victims into English society, welcomes this funding.

Luljeta Nuzi, the leader of the "Hope Program", says, "We hope these funds will be used efficiently to increase the prospect of education and change the concept of blaming a trafficked person."

This program of the British government will also help Albanian justice officials to legally punish human traffickers.
